Natural Feature
“The Penyal d'Ifac (in Spanish Peñón de Ifach) was the natural lookout for the inhabitants that lived in the surrounding areas. Another lookout was the Morro de Toix Mountain, from which the Mascarat Ravine, an essential passage along the coast, could be controlled.

Beach
“I loved Albir beach. The beach was clean with white pebbles and the contrast between the the stone and the water is really amazing. Beautifull beach, clean and spot on and the sea itself has such a nice temperature. 9/10 times caribean blue. Clean beach crystal clear water and lots of local restaurants and things to do on the beach if you wanted. Beach is shingle so you need beach shoes but it was a wonderful place to spend an afternoon before heading along the front to the tasteful shops and wide selection of bars and restaurants.”

“Cala Bosque and Cala Cerrada are the most widely known and popular of La Zenia’s beaches. It almost goes without saying that they are very popular during the summer and very crowded. The facilities with the restaurants and bars just off the beach are excellent and of very good quality. The nearby beaches of Cabo Roig and Playa Flamenca are also very much worth a visit.”

Scenic Viewpoint
“Vom Haus aus kommen sie zu gut Fuß auf die alte „Römerstraße“, die Sie am Berg erkennen können. Gehen Sie die Carrer Donzell hinunter, links, die nächste Strasse wieder links hoch, und dann die erste rechts. Immer geradeaus verlassen Sie dann bald das bebaute Gebiet und kommen auf eine steinige Straße. Gehen Sie diese Straße weiter bis Sie wieder an ein Haus kommen, ab da halten Sie Ausschau nach einem kleinen Trampelpfad auf der linken Seite, dieser führt auf den Berg. Von dort aus kommen sie auf ausgeschilderten Routen zu den zwei Höhlen und auch zum Gipfel des Montgo.”
